Show and Tell Friday!
Welcome to “Show and Tell Friday!” Do you have something special to share with us? It could be a trinket from grade school, a piece of jewelry, or a treasured collection. Look around your home for something to share; dig through those boxes in your closet if you have to! Share photos and the story that goes with your special item.
Today I am going to show you some special things on the bookshelf in our schoolroom.
We have several friends who are missionaries and they have given us neat things from the countries they serve in.
One of our friends just got back from Central Asia and brought us this stocking.
All the stitches are hand done and cover the front and back.
This is a Piola (pronounced Pee-ola) teacup . It is used for a weak black tea and then milk and either vegetable oil or butter are added to it. It is sweetened with sugar, unless they are having a large party and then it is unsweetened.
My friend also sent me these sweet little dolls this past Christmas. I keep them in the teacup.
A musical instrument very much like a tamborine. The top is most likely goat skin.
Metal rings along the inside rim. It's noisy!
These little egg shaped boxes are from Egypt.
Perfect for holding tiny things.
And finally a beautiful plaque that has The Lord's Prayer written in Arabic.
The words begin in the middle and go all around the edges.
Thank you for looking at my show and tell and have a wonderful weekend!
